Unicyclist Bikes Round Trip Across US

Between April 22 and November 12, 2002, Lars Clausen rode 9,125 miles from Tilamook, OR to Washington DC and then to Los Angeles taking in 39 states on a unicycle. His 202 miles from Martin, SD to Highmore, SD also set a Guinness World Record. He rode a 36 inch Coker unicycle and will be on a west coast tour with the book about his journey in the summer of 2004. He plans to be in Santa Cruz on August 3rd.

Lars's efforts rival those of Steve Stevens, who set a world coast-to-coast speed record of 29 days while on his Hi-wheel ride to our Cycle America 2000 in Washington DC and those of Jim MuŽllner. Last summer, on his Just2Bikes three wheeler, 67 year old Jim also had to have set some kind of record or two as he rode across the US for us.
